Umbrellas in the Snow

hero-image

It’s that time of the year again. The temperature is dropping with every breath you take and if you actually live somewhere with seasons, the fluffy white stuff is building up on your car and sidewalks.

Winter is here and so raises the debate about umbrellas. Do you use them in the snow or are they reserved for rain?

We all know basic science and that snowflakes are basically just frozen water, but when it comes to carrying an umbrella in the snow there seems to be a divide in this topic. In some places you can find a sea of umbrellas during the first snow of the season, but open up your own and you risk being called out.

So what’s the deal? Does the snow make you less wet? Is it because it falls slower than rain? Do you not mind your jacket getting wet? Maybe it’s because you’re probably already wearing a hat in the snow. We must know. Do umbrellas belong in the snow? Why or why not? Where do you stand in this debate?
